Team Sky took four of the top eight places at the opening stage of the 104th Tour de France with Geraint Thomas winning in the time of 14'04", five seconds a head of Stefan Küng (BMC Racing) and Vasil Kiryenka of SKy in third at seven seconds. Defending Champion Chris Froome finsihed in sixth spot 12" down.

The race, which took place in heavy rain, saw some heavy crashes with Nicolas Roche (BMC), Rick Zabel (Katusha-Alpecin), Dylan Groenewegen and George Bennett (LottoNL-Jumbo) ging down. The worst though saw GC contendor Alejandro Valverde (Movistar) crash out of the Tour with a broken knee. Ion Izagirre (Baheran Merida) was another non-finisher.The loss of Valverde will be a big blow to the prospects of Nairo Quintana who is looking to finally break through the Team Sky's defences and best Froome.

The win meant Thomas also secured his first yellow jersey, ten years after making his Tour de France debut in London. Swiss Küng emulated Alex Zulle (1992) and Fabian Cancellara (2004) to become the leader in the young riders category, while Vasil Kiriyenka starts Stage two in the green jersey.
